Langaholt Guesthouse is a magnificent hotel in the shadow of Snaefellsjokull Glacier. Any traveller looking for a modern, comfortable base immersed in nature while touring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula will find it ticks all their boxes.
Location & Nearby
Langaholt Guesthouse is located halfway down the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on its southern shore. This region is the highlight of west Iceland due to the sheer diversity of sites that can be found around every turn, and the hotel is a fantastic base from which to explore them.
The closest attraction is Ytri Tunga beach, a seal-watching hot spot, which can be found five minutes’ drive (or an hour’s walk) to the east; ten minute’s drive west, meanwhile, will take you to the stunning hamlet of Budir. The ‘Arrowhead Mountain’ from Game of Thrones, Kirkjufell, is one of the furthest attractions, but even that can be reached in 40 minutes.
As noted, Langaholt Guesthouse sits in the shadow of Snaefellsjokull glacier. The best place to experience this is in its surrounding national park of the same name, which also boasts sites like the Londrangar sea stacks and Djupalonssandur beach. Getting to these sites takes around half-hour.

Two of the rooms are wheelchair accessible.
The guesthouse is also home to a restaurant and bar that can seat 60 people, providing wonderful dishes and a great place to end the day. Furthermore, there are two communal lounges to relax in, one of which has a television.
